Internationally bestselling author Clare Mackintosh is best-known for her edge-of-your-seat crime thrillers, but behind the scenes, she’s a mother who has experienced the ultimate loss.
Over fourteen years ago, her son passed away due to brain damage caused by meningitis. After more than a decade, Clare is finally on the other side of the mountain of grief she’s had to overcome, but the pain of losing a loved one never really leaves us.
With that in mind, she took to Twitter to offer words of comfort and wisdom to others who may be struggling with their own grief right now.
My son died fourteen years ago today. If you’re struggling with the loss of a loved one, I have some promises for you.— Clare Mackintosh (@claremackint0sh) December 10, 2020
There’s so much hard-won wisdom in Clare’s words. We’d like to join her in wishing peace, love, and acceptance to anyone reading this story who is missing a loved one.
